Digicel Jamaica activates COVID protocol after employee tests positive

A member of the Digicel Jamaica staff has been confirmed as having tested positive for COVID-19.

With the safety and wellbeing of its staff among its top priorities, the company has activated the agreed COVID-19 response protocols with immediate effect.

All the staff members who have been in immediate contact with the affected employee have been tested and placed in self-isolation in line with the Ministry of Health and Wellness’ COVID-19 protocols.

Additionally, despite the fact that the employee concerned is not based at the company’s headquarters in downtown Kingston, out of an abundance of caution, the Ocean Boulevard building has been closed and deep cleaning and sanitisation of all physical spaces there will be carried out over the next 24 hours.

In addition, the company will be carrying out air purification activities.

The headquarters will be open again on Wednesday morning for normal operations.
